They sell a water pressure limiting gadget at Walmart to connect to the hose when you camp because some camp grounds may have higher pressure than what your connections will hold. I think it limits to 50psi. Very cheep insurance for <$10USD.

You can always sand down the edges to smooth them out.

This has been in place working beautifully all winter. I'll have to get some pictures up. I never did finish the install, it still needs bracing and permanent attachment of everything before I tow anywhere. Also I never put the water tank back in place, it needs new fittings so I can install it perpendicular to the way it was put in my the factory, parallel to the hot water heater. And then I need to add the water pump and I'll be ready for the road. But I may put the shore/city water hose connection in back by the tank, near the pour in filler for the tank. That way I only have to run one cold water line across the trailer and not one each way. And I'll have to run the gas line for propane use as well.
